The pending hiring of Mike Brown as new head coach of the Sacramento Kings pushes the number of black NBA head coaches to 14. The Lakers and Hornets also have head coach openings. pic.twitter.com/5iAMvWm53m8:54 PM

Righting the Sacramento Kings is a monumental task. Warriors assistant Mike Brown brings the qualities needed to fix a franchise in repair mode for more than a decade. He has never been more ready to excel. – 8:05 PM
Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds
Mike Brown might have done the best coaching job at the Olympics last summer. The man is elite. Give the Kings credit for making an incredibly smart move. – 7:54 PM
Matt George @MattGeorgeSAC
Regardless of being the right hire or not, Mike Brown will fail in Sacramento unless the Kings significantly improve the overall roster this summer.
Monte McNair’s work is just starting. Likely the primary reason for making the hire so quickly. – 7:43 PM
James Ham @James_HamNBA
A little late to the party, but I can confirm that Mike Brown is the new head coach of the Sacramento Kings. This feels like the right hire at the right moment. – 7:41 PM
Noel Harris @NorCalNoel916
Mike Brown brings a defensive presence to Sacramento and has won nearly 62% of his games as a head coach.
Sure, a team’s defense is only as good as the personnel on the roster, but it has to start at the top.
Good hire by the Kings. – 7:40 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
This is how long it’s been since Mike Brown was last a head coach.
This Cavaliers team was also the only time Mike Brown was a head coach on a team that didn’t have LeBron James or Kobe Bryant on it.
He’s seen some things for sure pic.twitter.com/YLLFfonEAd7:28 PM

Matt George @MattGeorgeSAC
If Mike Brown lasts all four seasons of his contract, he will be the first of the 13 Kings coaches since Adelman to do so.
Dave Joerger lasted 3 seasons. Paul Westphal and Luke Walton (technically) were fired early in their 3rd season. – 7:23 PM
Jason Jones @mr_jasonjones
Mike Brown is also the second time in the last three hires the Kings will hire a former Lakers coach. – 7:22 PM

I saw Mike Brown early Saturday afternoon in Union Square as I was getting in my car. Chatted for a second before dipping off. He is always smiling but he really had this sh*t eating grin yesterday. He knew!😂 – 7:09 PM
